If any dogs test positive for Canine Distemper Virus (CDV) at the shelter, we are immediately isolating them at our medical teams counsel and attempting to get them into a foster home. Since distemper positive dogs can shed the virus to other dogs for up to 3 months, they need to be isolated for that entire period or they pose a risk to other dogs at the shelter.
The Myron K. Martin Clinic is open for spay and neuter surgeries for dogs and cats. Make an appointment today.

(DALLAS, TX); January 14, 2022 – The SPCA of Texas is excited to announce that the 17th Annual Strut Your Mutt, the Race to End Animal Cruelty, presented by VCA Animal Hospitals and Hill’s Pet Nutrition, will take place on April 30 at Fair Park in Dallas from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. The festivities begin with a 5K timed race at 8 a.m. and a 3K fun run/walk at 8:15 a.m. Registration begins at 7 a.m. For even more fun, participants can browse through vendor booths at the Bow-Wow Bazaar and enjoy family-friendly activities.
People can bring their pets to join them in this unique event to raise funds for the SPCA of Texas and help fight animal cruelty. Supporters can register, form teams and fundraise, all to help North Texas animals from neglect and cruelty.
The goal of Strut Your Mutt is to raise awareness about animal cruelty in North Texas. The SPCA of Texas’ Animal Cruelty Investigations Unit responds to thousands of calls to rescue abandoned or neglected animals, many resulting in criminal convictions in multiple North Texas counties, and the community’s support makes this possible.
To participate, register and form a team at gostrut.org, and fundraise to help the SPCA of Texas. Registration for a 5K runner is $40 and a 3K fun runner/walker is $35. From January 14-16, registrants can use discount code “EARLYBIRD” to receive $5 off their registration. Once a team is registered and given a memorable name, strutters can set up a fundraising goal, recruit team members and build team spirit through their team page.
Strutters can go the extra mile and recruit friends and family to show their support by making a donation in honor of them, their own four-legged friends and all of the animals rescued from animal cruelty. The SPCA of Texas needs the community’s support now more than ever during these challenging times, as their work to end animal cruelty is more important than ever.
All registrants can do even more help the SPCA of Texas raise funds for its critical work ending animal cruelty by participating in the individual and corporate fundraising challenges for cool prizes. Top fundraising challenge prizes will be awarded to participants who collect the most pledges. Donations may be made for Strut Your Mutt through May 30.
The SPCA of Texas is grateful to its Strut Your Mutt sponsors, including: Presenting Sponsors: VCA Animal Hospitals and Hill’s Pet Nutrition; and Bib Sponsor: Guaranty Bank & Trust.
